    I have noticed on several gallery posts that the finish on the projects is mirror like in it's reflection. So my question is what are the favorite types of finish used and how are they applied? I know a good clean surface and smooth surface is needed, but I can get the finish I'm looking for. Thanks in advance to all who reply.

    Glad you could go to the symposium Bob. It would be great if you and others could share what you learned for those of us that were unable to make the trip.

    I promised to share some of the finishing information that was presented at the symposium.

    Attached is the PDF copy of the powerpoint presentation that Pete Marken used during his presentation.

    All the other information I have will be posted on Segmentedwoodturers.org website under the members area.

    So if you want to see it you will have to be a member.

    And if you here and serious about segmenting there is no reason you are not a member, it only $25.00 a year, you do not have to be a member of AAW and there is a great forum there, plus a extensive projects section with help files on all sorts of subjects. We are always updating the website with new information.

    This is a post I just made over at segmentedwoodturners.org

    This is another great reason to join segmentedwoodturners.org

    I am going to direct this post to mainly our new member and those that are new to segmenting or those looking for a new challenge in segmenting.

    At the top of this page in the menu bar you will see a menu item "Projects".

    I have just ported all the information in it over to our Word Press side of our website.

    There is a wealth of information there posted by some of our members.

    By porting it over to Word Press side of the website I am able to give you a preview of what is in each PDF.

    Please use this resource, there is information on dozens of segmenting processes and styles

    Sorry, I did try .org but do not see the menu. I thought maybe it was a preview for non-members.
